Moreover, in collaboration with University of Washington in Saint Louis, United Imaging has advanced the speed of cardiac MRI scanning, post-processing and imaging diagnosis based on our AI-enhanced 1.5T MRI. Another example comes from McGovern Medical School in University of Texas for molecular imaging research in the cardiac field from our PET/CT.
Several “world firsts” debuted at Arab Health
The world’s first total body PET/CT, uEXPLORER®, is an ultra-high resolution digital PET/CT with a 194 cm axial PET field of view (FOV) that allows full body scanning in a bedside position. The system offers dynamic full-body scanning, enables ultra-low patient dose, and produces ultra-high image resolution, changing the way full-body PET/CT imaging has traditionally been performed.
The uMR OMEGA™ is the world’s first 75cm ultra-large diameter 3T MRI, designed to push traditional boundaries without compromising image quality. The unprecedented ultra-wide bore is offered not only to enhance the patient experience, but also for MRI simulation for radiation therapy planning or intraoperative MRI. Combined with the uAIFI technology platform, it enables fast and accurate examinations.
The uAIFI technology platform focuses on the application of smart sensors, advanced chips and artificial intelligence technologies. It also enables the seamless fusion of MRI hardware advancement with software design throughout the imaging acquisition chain, breaking down traditional data silos and establishing a foundation for continued innovation over time.
